Betraying The Martyrs - Breathe In Life (Review)
The band is placed in a somewhat interesting genre of deathcore/post-hardcore. Mainly due to the fact the band features some quite deathcore like vocals while still having clean vocals and guitars to match the vocal combination.
The songs are written quite well, and the songs tend to be quite technical, though the mixing of the album has the guitar some what drowned out, and you kind of miss when the guitar does something lead like, as in the music video below, when the guitarist is doing his little solo and sweeps, it is hardly heard. Though the songs are still good in my opinion, I just personally would of wanted the guitars to be emphasized.
The screams though are quite well done, they are super low and have this sort of consistent rasp to it, which sounds great. The cleans are also quite good, but are done by the keyboardist not the singer.
The songs are quite nice, and the addition of a clean only song "azelee" was quite nice. The songs boost meaningful lyrics and are quite nicely done with the combination of heavy screams and clean vocals.
Betraying The Martyr - Breathe In Life 7.7/10
